Missoni celebrates curves
Missoni’s Autumn/ Winter 15 collection is all about showing off the female form.
The Italian fashion house presented its newest line at Milan Fashion Week yesterday, with particular emphasis placed on tight garments which showed off the models’ bodies.
Show notes revealed the clothes were for “the neo-body-conscious Missoni woman”, with an array of tight dresses and short skirts making their way down the runway.
There were longer hemlines too, with one model strutting in a floor-length number that featured a graphic print. The dress had one sleeve and red and white lines on the grey body of the gown.
It seems the 80s also had an influence on creative director Angela Missoni, with cut-out detail and one shoulder looks a prominent part of proceedings. The bold tones of purple and red, along with black and white, could be seen throughout.
Missoni is known for its prints and yesterday’s showcase, one of the last of Milan Fashion Week, was no different.
One model wore a tube dress in a dizzying black, red and white print, teamed with knee-high brown boots.
Dolce & Gabbana also showed yesterday, with the runway creations dedicated to motherhood. Viva la Mamma celebrated what it is to be a mother and featured pretty clothes full of roses and ladylike cuts.
One model even walked the runway holding a baby. She wore an embroidered dress in a golden cream colour. The gown fell to the calf, with mid-length sleeves and a round neck.
Fashion Week moves to Paris tomorrow and will see Pascal Millet and Anthony Vaccarello showcase their new lines.
